Q:

What is the average IQ level?

A:

The average IQ score, by definition, is 100. People who take IQ tests are compared to each other, and the average score is placed at 100.

However, IQ scores change over time. While some make the argument that IQ scores are immutable and can't be changed by external factors, Jim Flynn has shown that IQ scores have risen in much of the world since approximately 1930.

There is no single IQ test, and individuals might have significantly different scores on different tests. Although scores between different tests tend to correlate fairly well, it's possible for someone who scores below average on one type of test to score above average on another.

    How much energy is lost at each trophic level?

    According to the BBC, about 90 percent of the available energy in any trophic level is lost and becomes unavailable to higher trophic levels. For example, if the green plants in a habitat represent 1000 calories of food per square foot, the herbivores that eat these plants only represent about 100 calories per square foot. The predators that feed on these herbivores only represent about 10 calories per square foot.
